Fans still 

love Elvis 

tender 



MEMPHIS, Tenn. 
(AP) — Thousands of 
fans toured Elvis Pres- 
ley's mansion and visit- 
ed his grave Thursday, 
paying tribute to the 
"king of rock 'n* roll" 
with poems, flowers 
and photographs be- 
fore the eighth anniver- 
sary of his death. A 
week of tributes and 
events dedicated to 
Presley, who died Aug. 
16, 1977 at the age of 42, 
was centred on a 
memorial service and 
candlelight march. 

Betty Lou Watts 
stood in the drizzle 
without a raincoat or 
umbrella, a bouquet of 
blinking fake roses in 
her hand as she and 
almost 300 other fans 
waited for the candle- 
light vigil to begin. 

"1*11 stand out here 
till daybreak if I have 
to," said Watts, at the 
gates of the two-story, 
white-columned house 
Presley called Grace* 
land. Watts said she 
would put the blinking 
red roses on Presley's 
grave. "He lit up our 
lives." 

The event was ex- 
pected to attract 10,000 
or more fans, said offi- 
cials of Graceland 
Enterprises Inc., which 
operates the mansion 
as a tourist attraction. 
"It's a beautiful sight," 
said Graceland spokes- 
man David Beckwith. 

"We have the memo- 
rial service in the 
street in front of Gra- 
celand, and then we 
open the gates, and 
they light a torch from 
the eternal flame at the 
grave and bring it 
down. Then people 
light their candles and 
walk up the driveway 
to the grave." 

Fans from 'as far 
away as Japan, Austra- 
lia and Sweden come to 
Memphis on the anni- 
versary of Presley's 
death to tour his home, 
attend concerts and 
film festivals, partici- 
pate in trivia and art 
contests and swap El- 
vis memorabilia. 

"The crowd is usual- 
ly pretty reserved," 
Beckwith said. "A lot 
of people are here to 
mourn, but there are 
some who are celebrat- 
ing, especially the Bri- 
tish. They've been 
having dances every 
night." 

The fans troop 
through the. Georgian 
mansion's first floor at 
the rate of 3,400 a day, 
Beckwith said. Admis- 
sion to the house is 
$6.50 U.S. for adults 
and $4.50 for children. 
Fans may also walk 
through Presley's two 
jet planes, a Convair 
880 and a smaller Lock- 
heed JetStar, for $3.50. 
For $1, visitors may 
inspect the bus Presley 
took on tours. 



Smoking argument 
a ludicrous bore 

The ongoing argument on the 
issue of smoking is a ludicrous 
bore. I^et me conclude the babble 
with some common sense. I was 
once a smoking jerk. 

It's common knowledge that 
smoking causes cancer (as well as 
respiratory maladies). It's also 
common knowledge that we live in 
a free land where the individual 
has rights (to smoke or not to 
smoke — and to be not smoked 
upon). 

A smoker exercises his or her 
right to contract cancer. Smokers 
who smoke around non-smokers 
are inconsiderate because they 
choose to spread their cancer- 
inducing pollution.

i« n H ? ,,e !, frorn the folks at R Radical. 
Well, finally we got the first thousand 
Z P\ f % £ rom th .? .distribution for the 
EJEACJL,compilation. We've sold neartly 
/556 copies in the U.S. and 3000+ 
through R Radical Europe. So here we're 
expecting $6000 more over the next 3 
months, and more from Europe. We will 
keep you informed through MRR, 
Flipside, and Thrasher. The lirst $300 
goes to the Livermora Action Group: 
? 1 ec ?lll?9° & { P* Vancouver 5 Group 
third $200 to Rad Radio at KUSF in San 
Francisco; the fourth $200 to the 40th 
Anniversary of Hiroshima Action and 
Protest Group. 

. ,u Mo /r-TC?- ncJ a complete accounting 
tor the P.cAC.E. compilation forthcoming. 
Thanks to all who participated in any way 
or bought the record. We in the positive 

. politicaf harcore scene are helping to stop 
the arms race and are contributing to 
peace through energy, action, 
cooperation, for evolution. Stand proud; 
hell with the apolitical assholes and the 
violent fascist goons within our scene that 
seem to detract from all the positive 
energy folks who give a damn by 

Srotesting, surviving, and not giving up 
le ship. 
x . MpC will be back soon. Keep the 
faith. Peace, love, and let's steal control 
from the Multi-Death Corporation. 
Take care, hang tough, 
„ _,. , Alf the folks at MDC/R 

Radical 

P.S. Also, Dave MDC has started an 
International Hardcore Vegetarian Snack 
Bar, at 3159 16th St, San Francisco, CA 

94103. 

Toiu Helps The Brains Grow Soft 
Just for laughs mind you, don't 
go getting yer undies all in a 
bundle now.*. Good to see old Dave 
MDC gruaping around again , missed 
him all these months. Anyone note 
his ad in the 8/85 MRR? Now how do 
you figure, he calls his 2LP a 
world peace comp f and yet he gives 
the proceeds to the Vancouver 5, a 
group that bombed movie theaters, 
and the Livermore Action G*ng, a 
group noted for advocating violent 
confrontation with authority ,at 
least intellectually that is f for 
others. Positive* 

Here's one for all you inquiring 
minds who just have to know. Why 
is it that gossipin 8 shrink Kent 
Jolly didii't let us in on the hard- 
core scoop of all this, summer in 
his July San Fran MRR scene report,? 
At the Rock Against Maximum Hock 
and Roll gig in Bek&eley, Kent for- 
got to note that the two new members 
of the Fuck Ups, one of the bands 
that played rock against punks gin- 
chiest rag, are ex-members of MDC I 
Such irony 1 One of Tim Y's most be- 
loved Bands, MDC, supplying members 
for one of his most hated, the Fuck 
ups, and rocking against him! Oh 
Lordy Kent* will we ever be able to 
trust you again? Or will we now be 
forced to take our problems to 
that noted iacist Dear Afcby? 

Anyway, in the following funny- 
The Great Punk Political Divide- 
I swipe* two of Eofu Daves smokin 
stereotypes, i«,e., "Apolitical Ass- 
hole" and "Violent facist goon". I 
mean, you don't think I make this 
stuff up now, do you? 

Love and Quiches, 
Johnny
